the Pocket Master Face Frame Screw is a single pocket screw for any type of material. It is a patent- pending product that incorporates the patented Lo-Root thread design with an extra-long Type- 17 cutting point that practically elimi- nates splitting and cracking in hardwood frames. The coarse thread style works equally well in softer materials. It has a fillister style head to offer the best clamp- ing strength on the market and has a genuine #2 Robertson square recess to eliminate driver bit slippage. Several large cabinet manufacturers in the United States have already switched to the new Pocket Master fastener because it greatly reduces split- ting and cracking of their hard- wood frames, while increasing holding power and speeding up their assembly times.

The Sure Hold fascia board screw has wings that auger through the fas- cia and trim board, creating an oversized hole. The oversized pilot hole allows for the expansion and contraction movement and keeps fascia board panels straight. No pre-drilling is required. The Sure Hold screw has a self-starting Type- 17 auger tip that eliminates splitting and starts faster. The oversized flat top head cov- ers the oversized pilot hole and comes in a variety of colors. Mahogany, Earthtone, Graystone, Ipe and White painted heads are available to match your composite fascia board project. Made from strong 410 grade coat- ed stainless steel, these screws will hold up to a variety of extreme weather conditions. The recom- mended installation spacing is to install a minimum of two screws vertically at the end of the board then alternate in a zigzag pattern and install a screw every 12 inch- es, then finish with two screws at the end of the board.

LIGNOLOC WOODEN NAILS LignoLoc nails from Beck Fastener Group are the first collated nails made of wood. The wooden nails are made from beech wood and boast a ten- sile strength similar to aluminum nails. Their mechanical properties allow the nails to be driven into solid structural timber with the FASCO LignoLoc pneumatic nailer, without any pre-drilling, to form an inseparable bond with the timber. The special design of the LignoLoc nail tip and the large amount of heat generated by friction when the nail is driven cause the lignin of the wooden nail to weld with
